What student’s are right for a virtual high school?

• Students in need of increased class offerings such as a multitude of interesting and unique electives and Advanced Placement courses as well as multiple foreign languages (German, Mandarin, Spanish, French)
• Students missing credits and need to catch up
• Accelerated learners who want to graduate early or with college credits after high school
• Homeschool students
• Students who are socially facing challenges in traditional public school

How does it work?

• Local CA credentialed teachers provide daily oversight, motivation, and academic guidance
• Students get passwords and log in to curriculum sites and classes open. Parents can log in as well
• Instruction and assessment includes research, essay writing, multiple choice assessments, short answer assessments, video conferencing, animation, labs.
• Written assignments are graded by CA teachers
• The system shows hourly/daily student progress in each class
• Students can reset assignments or tests for which they received unsatisfactory grades by re engaging in the instruction and retaking the assignment up to 2 times
• Parents can “see” everything a student is doing, completion rates, grades, assignments; it is like getting a report card every day.
